Let's paint a picture for you, it's Friday, it's been a long day and the best way for you to wind down is to have a few *a lot* quiet ones with the boys.
You're maybe 4 drinks down and it's time to break the seal, you're washing your hands and what is going on your face? Has somebody come along and with red marker and used your face as a canvas? Nope, it may be your body's reaction to alcohol! Research from South Korea has discovered that people who get heavily flushed face may be at risk of alcohol-related hypertension.
This is an alcohol-related high blood pressure issue that could lead to other serious health issues like heart attacks and strokes. It may be a sign that your body is breaking down alcohol slower than usual which can be more harmful.
If you have any of these reactions you may just wanna chill on the old juice a bit and get checked by the doctor, and then you might be on your way back to getting LIT!!
